First of all, I wish all bras were made with such strong fabric! I loved how firm the band fabric was.....except it runs small. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I could barely get it fastened. It doesn't come any bigger, so I'm sized out.
The cup is projected for a half cup, tall, open on top and has room for center fullness. I gape and would probably risk trying a size down if this came in a 40 band.
The straps are pretty skinny for a full bust bra. It's so gorgeous, I wish it fit.
EDIT: Forgot to add..the gore from top to bottom of underwire is 4.5"
I don't know what my problem was with this bra, but it was almost like there wasn't enough room in the bottom of the cups, so my extremely soft tissue is just kinda squishing out of the top of the cups. The straps are also super thin, so they dig into my shoulders. Overall just the wrong shape for me.
Band was really stretchy and I could almost fit my hand underneath it while wearing it on the first set of hooks. Cups had a lot of space at the top, probably due to my breast shape. However, the gap was quite severe so it might be partially due to this bra cups running large, as other reviews have stated. I'm still trying to figure out what styles/size is best for me, but unfortunately this one did not fit. Hoping to get it right, as this bra is beautiful! Love the pink lace around the cup
This bra is so pretty but I can't decide if it fits well enough.
I don't get any quadding but the gore is only lightly tacking. On the sides I don't find it's sitting on any tissue, so I don't think that's the issue. I'm thinking it might be that the gore is too wide, a shape mismatch, or a the cups are slightly too small (unfortunately I sized down since I think a 28E might be too big based on others reviews).
After trying a cleo mimi in 28E I've realized I need to size up so looking to exchange.
This bra is absolutely beautiful. The print is very vibrant. The structure of the longline is very comfortable. When I first got it it fit me well. For a molded bra it has a decent amount of space for projection and good lift, overall creates a nice rounded shape. However, it's pretty open on top, and my size or shape seems to have changed recently so now it gapes to much at the top for me. I also think it runs about a cup size large compared to other cleo/panache molded bras.
Oh dear - this bra runs REALLY big in the cups. This is the SS16 colorway, I had tried the AW16 colorway in a store in what I was certain was a 34G and that was a much, much better fit than this - the cups were a lot shorter. As with most longlines, the band runs firm so I would recommend sister sizing up. The actual bra itself feels well made, looks great, but is a lot shallower, wider and taller than Cleos generally are on me.
It's beautiful and I'm really dissapointed it doesn't fit me. I thought it would fit the same way as Cleo Minnie Longline Padded Balconnet Bra (7435) but it doesn't. At first I ordered it in my usual 30E but it had too big cups for me and also band was little bit tighter. So I tried 32D. But this doesn't fit me either. It still has too open cups for me (I would never believe I say something like that due to my tall roots) but they are also too small and the central gore doesn't tack my sternum. Cups are definitely more open on tops than Minnie's cups. I still have this beauty at home and I would like to sell it, so if somebody is interested in Breeze in 32D, just let me know. It's new without tags.
I loved the shape of this bra under clothes, its uplifted and round. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the seams do not show up at all under even the thinnest of clothes and don't give even a hint of a pointy shape. Also it pushes my boobs together nicely so I don't have any excess side bulge/east-west shape. I also loved the secure feeling the longline band gives, so this bra is definitely on my wish list. The only problems were the colourful floral pattern, not very practical and means I wouldn't be able to wear it under anything thin, unless it was also floral, I guess. I wish they had a plain nude and black version. And the gore seems to be floating away from my sternum.. the wires in general don't seem to be flush against my ribcage but I think that maybe a design problem with all longlines anyway, as the same thing happened with smaller size too.
